what we do

We are a group of current and former CEOs, Board advisors, Chairpersons and senior executives with large, multifaceted and multi cultural organisations.


LAVAUX provides management, change consulting and advisory services grounded in strategic and operational leadership. At the heart of everything we do is our unrelenting drive to peek into and make sense of the future.


We are strategists, management consultants and advisors — inspired by transforming clients’ businesses so that they can reach escape velocity.

Our teams brainstorm, envision and inspire.

At LAVAUX we employ generative sensing and often abductive reasoning, to help clients build Schumpeterian advantage and create new control points for value .


Our passion is contagious and our people are simply the best.

Apophenia    æpoʊ'fi:niə

is the human tendency to perceive meaningful patterns within random data.

Benoit Mandelbrot reminds us about  “the inevitable consequence of the human need to find patterns in the patternless” Hence, we are often the prisoners of our own cognitive biases.
Great leaders are those who are able to overcome such biases while creating an environment of intellectual stimulation. 
They create a new context, inspire, orchestrate, deal with change and
think about evolutionary adaptive transformation. They are inviting others not to just simply follow but to co-create.

tension mechanism  between
 creativity  - essential for innovation 
 discipline  - essential to execution "
